Standard EA video issue.

Skid where is the issue this is a duplicate of ? Or should we start having an issue per game it effects ?

The EA videos issue is issue 5046. Does EA Sports Active play the game with a purple tint like the issue description says?

#4 Updated by oangelo over 7 years ago

Well, I tried the "EA Sports Active", "EA Sports Active 2" and "EA Sports Active - More Workouts". Everyone of them has the video issue. This looks like the Standard EA video issue.

#5 Updated by oangelo over 7 years ago

I can play "EA Sports Active - More Workouts"(id=SEAP69), the colors are fine.
Since the game is pretty similar to "EA Sports Active" , I would expect to have the same color issue(purple tint).
Another thing is: I can go in-game both "EA Sports Active - More Workouts" and "EA Sports Active". However, both games are very slow! I have tried many different hacks, and no deal, the game still too slow. My PC is not that bad! Should I open an issue about this slow?

Is this still an issue? The tint, not the nvidia lines bug.

#7 Updated by oangelo over 6 years ago

The issue still there, purple ink when the game starts, I have tested with dolphin 4.0-3178.

Safe Texture cache resolves the color for me. Other part is duplicate of the VP6 issue.
